§ Mr. Wigley
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if he will publish a list showing the latest figures for(a) the total number of applications, (b) the total number of teaching posts and (c) the ratio of applications to teaching posts at secondary school level in Wales; and if he will include a breakdown for each county and for each subject taught.
§ Sir Wyn Roberts
No information is available centrally on the number of teaching posts by subject. This, together with applications for appointment, is a matter for local education authorities.
General information about the numbers of subject teachers is available from the secondary school staffing survey, which was published in July, and is in the Library of the House.
